A possible kidnapping and rape is under investigation by the Victoria County Sheriff's Office.

An emergency call came in about 9 a.m. Thursday, when a woman said she had been kidnapped and sexually assaulted, Sheriff T. Michael O'Connor said.

The woman said a man followed her from the Trading Post in Nursery, forced himself into her truck and drove her out to Farm-to-Market Road 447, where he assaulted her.

The woman was blindfolded and said the man told her not to move until he drove off, O'Connor said.

He left in her vehicle.

Further details about the case, including the man's description, were not released pending an investigation.
